It Seems To Work

There is a point in every project where you’ve built it and it is time to test. You begin testing and with a coupla tweaks you get to the point where it seems to work.

How long, how much more testing do you do before you move from “it seems to work” to “it works!”.

Quality is determined because there is a lot of time and a lot of trials until it is deemed to be “it works!”

These days, more and more products get to the “it seems to work” phase and then shipped. Soon people determine that it doesn’t always work.

Where is pride in workmanship? Has it been lost in cost cutting?
